Video of Planned Parenthood Hiding Sexual Abuse Sent to Wisconsin Officials

Milwaukee, WI (LifeNews.com) — The organization responsible for an undercover investigative video showing Wisconsin Planned Parenthood officials hiding a case of sexual abuse and urging violation of the state’s parental consent law has sent the full tape to state and local authorities.
As LifeNews.com reported, Live Action released the 10th video in a series showing Planned Parenthood centers across the nation covering up cases of statutory rape.
The videos also show officials giving misleading information about fetal development and abortion and urging teens to avoid parental involvement laws.
Live Action has made public the full, unedited video from its undercover investigation and sent it to the Wisconsin Attorney General and Milwaukee District Attorney.
Last week, Planned Parenthood Wisconsin CEO Teri Huyck called the videos "highly edited" and accused Live Action of manipulating footage to make a "false and inflammatory" video.
"Assuming this patient gave us her name, we would report it," Huyck said. "The so-called patient in this case did not provide identifying information. In fact, she refused."
Yet, the full footage includes Planned Parenthood staff taking down a full name for the girl, "Janelle Marion," and a birth date, in order to help her obtain a judicial bypass waiver for her abortion.
Lila Rose, the 21-year-old president of Live Action, calls on Wisconsin state authorities to move forward on a probe of the abortion business.
"Planned Parenthood has clearly violated public trust by covering up sexual abuse. Now their CEO Teri Huyck is lying to the public about this cover up. Wisconsin Law enforcement must hold Planned Parenthood accountable to the law. And Wisconsin lawmakers must put an end to the millions of dollars of taxpayer subsidies Planned Parenthood receives," she told LifeNews.com today.
The video shows staff at a Wisconsin facility counseling a purportedly 14-year-old girl to not divulge how a 31-year-old man impregnated her.
The video also shows Planned Parenthood staff coaching the girl on how to obtain an abortion without her parent’s consent — in violation of Wisconsin state law.
In Wisconsin, state law spells out that sexual relations between an adult and a minor under the age of 16 is a felony and health care professionals are required to report such cases to law enforcement immediately. The law specifically includes abortion providers in the reporting requirement.
After hearing the girl is allegedly 14 and her boyfriend is "much older," the new video shows the Planned Parenthood counselor saying whether the statutory rape will be reported to authorities "depends on the person you’re disclosing that information to."
When the girl says that her boyfriend is 31, the counselor tells her, "You don’t have to say anything" about the statutory rape and instructs her, "Just give them the information that’s needed."
The counselor also confirms that the 31- year-old "boyfriend" will be paying for the abortion the actor posing as the underage minor is allegedly seeking.
Live Action is also responsible for a recent video expose‘ of biased counseling and medical misinformation at Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. Wisconsin law requires that women be provided accurate medical information before undergoing an abortion.
"The evidence is now available for all to see that Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin ignores state laws that have been in place for years," Rose says. "Wisconsin law enforcement needs to follow the lead of other jurisdictions, investigate this corrupt organization, and enforce the laws that protect vulnerable women and their pre-born children."
The Alabama Department of Health put a Birmingham Planned Parenthood on probation two weeks ago after finding numerous additional legal violations after the video prompted officials there to conduct an investigation.
